Beta Rev 3 Won't Kick Start Properly

16 posts in this topic

I know this topic has probaly been spoken about before but..!!

I have a beta rev 3, year 2001 i think.

I bought this bike over a year ago and havnt been able to ride it due to transport so its been sat in the shed. Now i have transport ive taken the bike out the once.

But it takes like 30+ kicks or so to start the bike, this is my first bike so maybe my kicking isn't so good, ive had a mate try kicking also and it just wont go.

The more kicks the bike seems to try and start, start and cut out, and then finally will start.

Ive read checking carb jets, spark plugs and air filter could be the issue.

Any help would be great, cheers.

HI

If its been sat around in a shed for a year, you will have to get rid of the fuel thats in the tank and clean out the carb. put fresh petrol mix in and it will probably be fine.

hi there,if you transport it with the fuel on ,you will flood it like i used too and it will take forever to start-only my input tho

Try draining the carb. Then add fresh fuel?

You could also take the plug out and kick over to clear the barrel.

I put STP carb cleaner in my KTM tank for the winter and then take it out for a quick blat as I am a fair weather road rider and it keeps the carbs nice and clean with no running problems.

Not so relevant here but it does clean the innards up a bit.

The KTM runs on neat Carb Cleaner?

It's probably cheaper than petrol :D

Just in case someone thinks it does - No it doesn't.

Take the plug out and put a new one in.

Reed valve ok?

Compression ok?

Carb fitted ok?

Needs a set of rings. It may seem to run OK once it's going but throw a set of rings in and it will seem like a whole new bike.

Where are you based Steve? Someone might be able to pop by if they know where you are?

It could be something as daft as a sticking float which is flooding it.
